A circular walk

The highlighted circular route shown on the map is about 5 miles. It takes you to all the memorials and the tearoom before returning beside the Thames.

Follow Cooper's Hill Lane (mostly a surfaced path) up to the Air Forces Memorial (1¼ miles from station) where there are good views. Next, return a little way and turn left down steps through woodland and then across meadows to the other memorials and Tearoom. After wet weather this section through woodland and meadows may be muddy in places. The return route is an easy, level path beside the Thames and a surfaced path across meadows.
